Sturgeon Bay will be turning green a week early this year for St. Patrick’s Day. The Annual St. Patrick’s Day parade will be a held this Saturday even though St. Patrick’s Day is Friday, March 17. The parade route will begin at the Sawyer Park on the city’s west side and proceed over the Maple-to-Oregon Bridge and down Third Avenue. Entries are still being taken and certificates will be awarded to the Best Irish Entry and three other categories. Parade goers enjoyed unseasonably warm 60 degree temperatures last year. The weather forecast is calling for partly sunny skies and a high temperature of 25 degrees Saturday.
